Chalk up a double win for the Krugman Truth Squad. We’ve forced Paul Krugman to publish a double-correction appended to his New York Times column last Friday.

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.
